DeKalb's Lincoln Inn Expands Food Service in 1918

From the March 21, 2018, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"In addition to ice cream service, the Lincoln Inn has now added light lunches and is now in shape to serve sandwiches, coffee, pie, etc., and the coffee is real honest to goodness coffee.

"The new feature was added during the last few days, a room at the rear of the dining room having been fitted up as a kitchen and it is almost certain that the new wrinkle will prove popular with patrons of the Inn."

We went to the Lincoln Inn in downtown DeKalb last month and asked if the one mentioned 100 years ago and this one were the same, but the people there didn't know.  They are/were both on the Lincoln Highway, of course.
